Introducing the incomparable Turbo Vado SL 4.0 EQ by Specialized. With its unique blend of lightweight design, superior range, power, and ride quality, this professional-grade e-bike was meticulously designed for the urban warrior and cross-country explorer alike.

The Turbo Vado SL is so light that you'll find it easy to haul it up on a wall or carry inside a train or bus. But don't be deceived by its lightweight nature, this power-packed e-bike is no slouch. The built-in MasterMind Turbo Control Unit (TCU) lets you effortlessly monitor your ride info while on the go.

The Nimbus tires are tailor-made for rides on and off the pavement, offering solid grip and quick rolling. In addition, extra-bright built-in lights ensure your safety by increasing visibility in low-light conditions.

The e-bike's Turbo SL technology, paired with an optimised frame, offers an unbeatably lightweight build without compromising on power and performance. Moreover, the advanced electric bike system provides a natural feel, complete with anti-theft functions, useful riding tips, a built-in bike computer, and impressive ride-anywhere range.

Note: The speed limit at which the motor will stop supporting may vary based on local requirements and this may affect range: a higher speed limit may result in less range.

Key features include:

  • An integrated 320Wh downtube battery compatible with optional Range Extender for up to 80 miles (130 km) or 6 hours (eco mode) or up to 120 miles (200 km) or 9 hours with range extender (eco mode).
